BODY BIZARRE features stories of individuals living with the most mysterious and incredible medical anomalies, and focuses on the transformative aspects of those inflicted as they undergo treatment. Each hour-long episode uncovers several cases spanning the globe of real but astonishing medical abnormalities that continue to stump the best doctors and experts, drawing viewers into a still unknown realm in medical science. From a young Nepalese man born with three legs and a bizarre birth defect that caused a Brazilian man's vertebra to twist so severely that his head is now upside down, to a rare syndrome that causes a family from a remote Swedish village to have insensitivity to pain, the series not only provides unprecedented access into the lives of these individuals as they share first-hand accounts of their daily struggles, but also explains the science behind each anomaly and celebrates the remarkable spirit of the individuals who have persevered.
